Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

October Recap!

Posted on 10/29/2015

I always look forward to October each year, as it usually brings cool, comfortable weather and hot fishing.  Well, this October certainly did not disappoint.  We got 20+ inches of rain to start the month off, but as soon as the water had a few days to settle out, the bull redfish bite kicked off full blast.  While the peak of the run was fairly short to due to weather/water conditions, it was nothing short of world class while it was happening.  A big southwester in the middle of the month really slowed the redfish fishing and broke up a lot of the large schools, so I transitioned into trout fishing mode, and quickly found some consistent action with them as well, and it only seems to be getting better as the trout get more schooled up for the winter.  We have had a better October trout bite this year than in the last several, so that should mean great things are in store for November.  We have also been finding some smaller reds, black drum, and flounder as well, but have honestly been mostly focusing on the trout since the action has been so consistent.  November dates are filling in quickly, so don't hesitate if you would like to get in on what I hope is some great trout fishing in the next few weeks!  Check out the photos below of some of our catches for this past month!
